Allego has opened its new ultra-fast charging hub at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes, which provides six ultra-fast charge points through three dual-socket 300kW chargers.
The company’s new facility will allow visitors to Stadium MK, as well as residents and passing traffic, to charge their EVs whenever they need, and in no more than 10 to 15 minutes.
Allego has a network of more than 40,000 charge points across 16 European countries.
With more than 160 UK charging sites, including about 120 charge points installed across London over the last 18 months, the Allego network is set to expand rapidly over the next five years.
Working with both private landowners and local authorities, the company is keen to invest about £100 million in ultra-fast EV charging infrastructure across the UK and Ireland.
Paz Sharma, managing director Allego UK said, “This is an important step in our future plans and a vital new piece of infrastructure to support Milton Keynes’ and Stadium MK’s green ambitions.
“The new charge points can offer up to an 80% charge in as little as 15 minutes, providing a huge boost to electric-vehicle drivers on the move.
“Along with being ultra-fast, our charge points are flexible and fair to all users – that’s why charging is open to all car types and models with no subscription fees or connection costs, just a simple tap of a credit or debit card, as well as 280 EV charge cards.”
Pete Winkelman, chairman of Milton Keynes Dons Football Club said, “As part of our Stadium MK Net-Zero strategy, we are constantly striving to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a more sustainable future for everyone.
“Stadium MK was built with accessibility in mind, and we are proud that Allego’s new charging hub is uniquely designed and configured to be fully accessible to all users, including wheelchair users.”
